(Fri.) Hurricane Irma has been targeted with pinpopint microwave RF energy overnight and the storm has diminished slightly, and is now generating 150 MPH winds with CAT4 status. Notice the dimple marks from the microwave transmitter on the Northwest quadrant in the Visible Light map. Those areas are where the transmitter has targeted the storm. The microwave targeting superheats and disrupts the convective process in the bands of the storm as well as the eyewall of the storm which is also visible in the maps. The eyewall becomes elongated for a period of time – looking like a football, and then rebuilds itself. The color change in the IR map confirms the depth of the watervapor around the center changes after the microwave hits near the eyewall. This targeting and weakening of the hurricane seems to be too little too late as Florida is dead ahead in Irma and the weather controller’s crosshairs. High pressure is apparent on the South and West sides of this hurricane which is helping to steer the storm in a more Northwest trek, but currently, in the maps with the grid turned on, the storm seems to be tracking due West, but this may change. Hurricane Jose is on the heels of Irma and is now also generating 150 MPH winds (CAT4) but has a higher central pressure; the storm will probably intensify in those 83-85F waters.
